Nobody wants a frog in their throat, but back in the day, ice cream truck fans loved getting their hands on one very special and fruity, frog-shaped treat. Known affectionately as Fat Frog, this frozen delight was a fruit flavored ice pop in the shape of a friendly green frog with two bright red bubblegum eyes.
